You will soon get the hang of things, and practically anything goes as long as it stays polite, carefully written, and accepts gentle criticism. One liners, haikus, epic sagas, - go for it, Derek! In return you are expected to read and comment on the posts other poets enter in order to animate the group.
'Board Index' gives you access to sites, which will, in their turn, give you access to others. Like stepping in to a library, looking round the shelves and choosing the books that are of interest to you.
A little wordy, but I hope this post has helped you. Geordiegirl1939, aka gg.
